Regional expansion up for CHESAA-A A +A
Sunday, March 30, 2014
CORDILLERA Higher Education Sports Athletic Association recently announced the possibility of tapping other schools outside Benguet.
“With the 12 years existence of CHESAA’s organization, I think it is about time that we also open doors not only for the schools in Baguio and Benguet but for the whole of the Cordillera,” CHESAA 2013 executive board president Vladimir Cayabas told Sun.Star.
“One of our advocacies is to come up with a region wide academic and sports organization that truly extends its boundary throughout the Cordillera, that is simply why we keep on running for this goal of extending region wide,” he said.
Cayabas earlier mentioned his proposal of conducting a regional sports summit to be initialized as part of the promotions of CHESAA.
Presently, CHESAA has 11 member schools found in Baguio and Benguet: AMA Computer College, Baguio College of Technology, Baguio School of Business and Technology, Benguet Vocational School, Data Center College of the Philippines, Easter College, Kings College of the Philippines, NIIT-Baguio, Philippine Nazarene College, Philippine Women’s University, and HML College.
Cayabas said he looks forward to the 13th season of CHESAA which will open in September.
“I believe the 12th season did great, even adding new events that really build up participation amongst the students of each school. We hope to stage a better presentation each year with the help of our members,” Cayabas said. (Mark Victor Pasagoy)
